After graduating high school, Lambert moved to Los Angeles to begin his career. His theatrical career took off quickly, and he began landing roles in local shows like Joshua in "The Ten Commandments: The Musical" and Phil Mackey in "110 in the Shade."
American Idol Fame
Lambert nailed his American Idol audition in 2008, making it onto the show and finishing second in the eighth season. Lambert found himself in the spotlight and on magazine covers before he knew it, and he has since admitted that he was "overwhelmed in the beginning."

Following American Idol, Lambert went on to make many albums, but he struggled to find his voice and changed genres several times. Lambert later moved on to cinema and television, including roles like Elliot "Starchild" Gilbert on "Glee" and Eddie in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again.”
